The Associated Press has posted an interesting article discussing how the boom in music video games is helping the original artists. According to The AP:
While a boost in sales was certainly expected, I'm pretty astounded by the numbers being thrown around. Sales doubling?!? Making more money from a game than two albums?!? To quote Brian Fellow of Brian Fellow's Safari Planet, "That's crazy!!!" It shows how amazing and powerful video games can be. I'm pretty sure that if you dig a little deeper, it also shows what a scam the record industry can be.
Are you ladies and gentlemen surprised by these claims? Or were they inline with what you were thinking?
